Leeds Festival – Metric Interview

In case you missed this Saturday’s round up of the Leeds Festival on BCB I will be posting some snippets of some of our interviews on this blog. So keep your eyes peeled and ears open over the next few weeks for interviews with Fightstar, Leathal Bizzel, Funeral For A Friend and many more.  But for today I you can hear me catch up with Jimmy (second from left) from Canadian indie electro outfit Metric.


BCB Radio - Â Jimmy From Metric...


PM Report – Metric, Fightstar and Soft Toy Emergency

So we have been busy busy busy. Weekend Vibe grabbed a few mins with Fightstar earlier. If everything is working OK IMG_0106there should be a little audio boo of this on the right of this post. The lads seemed a lovable rouge style characters (bless Charlie from Busted, we will never forget). I also conducted a interview with Jimmy from Metric (in the band and also does all the production) from Metric, (no audio boo from this, sorry, but you can look at this wonderful photo, and don’t people say a photo is worth a thousand words right?) You can also catch up with our full interview on the Festival round-up show on BCB next week. Metric played a blinding set with front woman Emily clearly following my lead by wearing sailor attire. Their set was very like being hit in the head by synth style icicles in a very exciting way.
Weekend vibe also took the lead and interviewed Soft Toy Emergency (I went to the loo). I have just gotten back from their set and I must say they are really one to watch. Undoubtedly the most exciting act I have stumbled across thus far. What do they sound like? Hmmm, think Foals, add a punky edge and you’re somewhere close.
The performance was stella – not just the front woman putting on a show but the whole band joining in the excitement of there sound. The crowd were also clearly very impressed with everyone joinning in with the ‘hotter nanny’. At one point they called to the crowd, “Is any one from Liverpool?” A massive cheer erupted. I glanced around nervously and checked for my wallet. Oh and I found 50 pence on the floor.
Gonna find White Lies now.
